Hardly a day goes by without a headline news story about a large corporation being the latest victim of cyber hacking. Individuals, too, are having their identities stolen by cyber thieves every day.
The Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business at the University of Dallas continues to help combat these ever-increasing cybersecurity threats and has once again been designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The accreditation, which the program first received in 2003, will cover academic years through 2021.
“Our Master of Science Program in Cybersecurity addresses a critical shortage of professionals with the skills needed in this area,” said Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Brett Landry, who also directs the business school’s Center for Cybersecurity Education. “We are honored to once again be recognized as a leader in preparing a growing number of cybersecurity professionals with the knowledge and technical skills to reduce vulnerabilities in the nation’s networks.”
Skills learned during the 30-credit-hour, practice-based graduate program prepare students for careers in such areas as threat analysis, network defense, cyber operations and digital forensics. The master of science degree in cybersecurity offers both online and on-ground courses and can be completed 100 percent online.
“Your ability to meet the increasing demands of the program criteria will serve the nation well in contributing to the protection of the national information infrastructure,” said NSA National CAE Program Manager Karen Leuschner.
Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business
The Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business, which offers master of business administration, master of science and doctor of business administration degrees, has become one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most popular choices for graduate business education. In November 2012, the college received accreditation from AACSB International, a distinction earned by fewer than five percent of business schools worldwide. The college will move into a new 45,000-square-foot building, SB Hall, in early 2016. For more information, visit www.udallas.edu/cob.
